Among the green of our province there are several marvelous waterfalls.

Ferrera waterfall - Situated in the municipality of Ferrera the waterfall is also known by local people as Fermona. It is located about 30 meters just below the village where the Margorabbia river flows out from the caves of the Cunardo ravine to reach Valtravaglia. At the bottom of the waterfall there's a small lake where water is crystal clear and completely surrounded by nature.

- How to get there: follow directions from the centre of Ferrera, walking for a short distance the bicycle path that comes from Rancio Valcuvia.
